We made reservations with high expectations and were disappointed that we had to wait upon arriving, and for food that was just average. We are still searching for the best brunch in EP,

Pretty good chicken fried steak and gravy. Excellent bison burger on a brioche bun and a friendly staff served us at lunch. This is a good place to get an easy meal.

We had a table by the windows overlooking the Big Thompson River. There were various options on the menu for every taste, and our food was delicious! We really enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and the ducks came right up to the feeder on the deck outside our window. The Other Side has become a family favorite that we visit every... More

We got into Estes for a quick weekend away on Sunday and were looking for somewhere to eat lunch. When we got to The Other Side they were still serving brunch. They had such a great selection and unlimited champagne to go with it! Great food and the price was average for a great buffet brunch. Had beautiful views too.

We went for dinner after a long, tiring day. The food was pricey. I ordered the pork tenderloin & it was almost raw. It was fun watching the geese & ducks through the window but I don't think the view was worth the price.

My husband and I visited this restaurant while we were in Estes Park. The restaurant has some good views and the place is clean. The service was a bit slow. It seemed that there was one waitress waiting on about 10-15 tables. I was confused by this because there were other staff members just standing around. The food overall was... More

While on vacation in Colorado, we always eat at The Other Side restaurant in Estes Park. The food is tasty, in portions to satisfy our hunger and the wait staff are pleasant. It's conveniently located near one entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, as well as the YMCA camp.

We were in Estes Park for my Father in Law's memorial service. This restaurant was close to our cabin and one morning we gathered as a family, for breakfast. It was a Sunday morning, so the long wait was expected as far as I was concerned. Service was extremely slow, but again, they were very busy. I thought our waitress... More

My husband ordered a green chili burger was told they were out of green chili. Ordered a prime rib didn't get that either but was not told they were out of it. Received a N.Y. strip and when he asked about it, he was told it was a prime cut strip????? Service was not good either.

The Other Side used to be one of our favorite places to eat as it offered things not available elsewhere. The menu on the website is not the same as the new menu given us today. Now it is just average. Very disappointing.
